 “Danny” Pasquale Colosimo                                                          

It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of Pasquale (Danny) Colosimo on April 12, 2020 at the North Bay Regional Health Centre. Pasquale (Danny) Colosimo was born on March 5, 1922 in Colosimi, Italy. He immigrated to Canada in 1951 and settled in North Bay where he married his first wife, Faustina Poeta. Danny was widowed and subsequently married his current wife, Estella (nee Matheson) in 2001.  They shared many happy times together and enjoyed their time with family and friends. He was a successful barber serving the Hornell Heights RCAF Base for decades. Danny was a dedicated member of the Catholic Church Community. He enjoyed supporting St. Rita’s Roman Catholic Church as Communion Server, and later as a member at St. Peter the Apostle Roman Catholic Church.

Danny will be greatly missed by his sister, Vanda Notaro (nee Colosimo) of Barrie, Ontario. He will be sadly missed by many members of the Notaro, Poeta and Matheson families, along with many other family and friends. Danny was predeceased by  his parents: Serafino Colosimo and Falzetta ( nee Ginseppino) and his three brothers:  Umberto, Pierino and Paolo.

Due to the current Covid-19 circumstances, a private family service will be held. Interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery. Special thanks to the many people who helped support Danny in his final years; the many Personal Support Workers who provided invaluable care in his home, Shannon Cadieux, BScN, NP (Nurse Practitioner) of Behaviour Supports Ontario (BSO), Dr. Oyeniran, Family Physician, NELHIN Nurse Case Managers ( Esp.Emily King) and the amazing Health Care Professionals and support staff at the North Bay Regional Health Center, who continue the difficult work during this pandemic.
